Shopping List Free (Grocery List): create quick shopping lists and easily find your way around stores



This app is designed to save you a significant amount of time and stress at the supermarket by helping you easily plan your shopping trips to make sure you know exactly what you need so that you don’t end up missing anything.

Too Many Bad Apples

This app really isn’t as much of a pleasure to use as it appears to be at first glance; the user-interface is quite sparse and putting together a shopping list is a lot more time consuming than it should be for me to be able to honestly say that it could save you some time.

Shopping List Free (Grocery List) enables you to create a vast database of grocery items which can be added to your shopping list using the handy Quick Select function, and what’s more, your items can also be sorted into different categories such as the aisles or departments they’re found in at the store.

This is supposed to help you plan your route around the supermarket, saving you even more time, but in reality it takes a pretty long time to get the basics down so it may take a while before this app starts saving you time on your grocery runs.

Each entry you make into the database and your list will be automatically saved so that next time you can Quick-Select it again, along with the amount you specified last time and even the store department it’s found in.

Whether you prefer to use the Imperial or Metric system, both are here if you need them so you can easily figure out how much you need of certain fruits, vegetables, meats, and so on.

Pros and Cons


  • Quick-Select items from your food database to put together a shopping list and save time at the supermarket
  • Imperial and Metric systems are both included
  • Categorize your food items according to store department


  • Very clumsy and awkward to use
  • There appear to be some issues with crashing and stability as a whole

Final Words

So far the functionality of Shopping List Free (Grocery List) has left me pretty disappointed but this is the free version so my advice would be to take it for a test spin to see what you think, and if you like it then you might consider upgrading to the paid version.

Other users have been commenting on the lack of functionality this app offers and how this is greatly contrasted with how it has been presented and marketed by the developer, and I definitely agree with this; there needs to be a lot of work put in before this app will become competitive.

This app also crashed twice while I was using it (which wasn’t for very long) so that hasn’t exactly inspired much confidence. Shopping List Free (Grocery List) definitely has the potential to be a decent app with a few tweaks and additions so I sincerely hope the developer will pay attention to the customer feedback and make the necessary changes in future updates.
